Synchronous Motor vs One Motion

While an asynchronous motor (commonly known as induction motor) is the predominantly used motor, there are situations where a synchronous motor makes more sense. Depending on your needs, using a synchronous motor over an induction motor can offer several benefits. For...
Direct Drive – Pushing Magnets Around

Direct Drive – Pushing Magnets Around

Direct Drive is the application of force to the final mover. In simpler terms, no transmission, no gear reduction, no gear box, no oil, only the application of electromagnetic force to move the object.  In our design we push the magnets around on an outer ring to...
